Overnight Camp

Spending a week on the farm allows campers to really dive into the day-to-day operations of a working dairy farm. They will rise with our farmers and help them carry out the daily chores including milking our cows and goats and feeding and watering the rest of our animals. They will tend to and harvest the garden and work with our CIA-trained chefs to cook meals using farm-fresh ingredients. Campers will spend their mornings working hard doing chores and ensuring that our animals are well-cared for and afternoons will be spent playing in the creek, exploring our fields and forests, and enjoying each other’s company. 

Overnight programs will each have a different focus. While every overnight camper will participate in daily chores and cook their own meals with our chefs, we want to provide opportunities for young people to explore different aspects of our farm that they are particularly interested in. The purpose of these programs is to get participants excited about animals, fresh foods and their environment. We hope to instill a sense of enthusiasm and responsibility for our land and the people who care for it.
